attention. we're greatly disappointed in what's going on and we deserve better. of course, whether congress gets that message is another mart. but the concentration of starbucks stores near capitol hill is relatively low. u.s. stocks slid wednesday on the back of reports that this holiday season might have been the worst for retailers since the beginning of the financial crisis. you can see shares leading the way lower down by .3.75%. holiday sales rose less than 1% this year compared to the 2% increase in 2011. greg, if the u.s. economics et tore is still with us. should we finger the fiscal cliff here for being the english that stole christmas or is there something else going on? >> it might be the fiscal cliff. one of the interesting trends we've seen in the last few months was business spending was taking a hit as companies scaled back their expansion plans, worried that we might be heading into ae investigation in 2013 because of the fiscal cliff. but we didn't see similar behavior on the part of consumers. what you're seeing now might be a sign that consumers have, in fact, begun to r

. we've got another one, "wall street journal." "the biggest cliff of all. a few days after the newtown shootings, a familiar american policy-making consensus called for federal gun-control laws. more precisely, they want congress to pass the ban on big, dramatic-looking assault-type weapons that existed from 1994 until the law sun-setted in 2004. government, for the past 80 years, or so, has seen its purpose as mainly to respond to society's failures the moment they occur or whenever they are imagined. adam lanza killed with guns so modern, policy-making logic posits that government must pass a law. whether that law will accomplish its goal is irrelevant. policy-making has become an activity that supports the genetic and financial needs of policymakers and their follower tribes. the community's role, we've lately learned, is to provide revenue. where are we going with that? >> i think he started off in a legitimate direction where he talked about how much of the legislation is done with deadlines and during lame-duck sessions. we're responsive as opposed to getting proactive. i get whe

in the larger sense and he knew and cared deeply that the supreme court not be regarded as simply another branch of congress, where democrats and republicans pay. he wanted the court to be seen if at all possible i somewhat elevated from that sort of discourse. but as a third reason, worth remembering the republican conservative agenda for the supreme court that i talked about early on. expand executive power and preferences. above all, reverse roe v. wade. the commerce clause was not part of that agenda. again, any story i tell and "the oath," the idea that an individual mandate was unconstitutional was invented out of thin air essentially fixed months before the law was passed. the individual mandate had been pioneered by the conservative heritage foundation and the late 80s. decades it had been discussed and no one had ever suggested it was unconstitutional. you might think. someone might've noticed this really unconstitutional. it is an example i think and i believe robert staines of the kind of political frenzy. a desire of the part of republicans to defeat the saw at any cost, any price an

. economists already warning the fiscal cliff situation could cause another recession. now we're about to hit the nation's debt ceiling. secretary geithner in a letter to congress did go ton say, quote, he would take extraordinary measures and say these extraordinary measures can create approximately $200 billion in head room under the debt limit. under normal circumstances the amount of head room would last approximately two months. however, given the significant uncertainty that now exists with regard to unresolved tax and spending policies for 2013, it's not possible to predict the measure. because of the uncertainty of the fiscal cliff they don't know whether they have enough head room to make sure the nation's debt ceiling doesn't reach limit within two months. the bottom line is even if we deal with the fiscal cliff in the next few days and avert that. there is another crisis with the debt ceiling looming in under two months, harris. big deal. >> harris: i know we have been talking about the weather. this too is is a perfect storm. ed henry, thank you. first time we are hearing. caught

by state lawmakers, participation would be entire tirely optional. patti ann: yet another fiscal cliff concern. the price of milk, if congress doesn't take action before new year's day the price could more than double. dominic di-natale is live in los angeles right now to explain for us. hi, dominic. >> reporter: hi, patti ann. milk could reach eight bucks a gallon. currently $3.65. a bill that covers billions of dollars in agricultural subsidies. if they don't do that government will have to buy up massive quantities of milk because of outdated 1949 law. they could sell their milk directly to the government first, would be obliged to pay twice the market rate. that would create a milk shortage and spike the prices consumers pay. the senate passed a farm bill. agricultural committee passed a similar bill. they are not identical. differences aren't so wide just that the full house of representatives hasn't approved the bill and it has come down to the wire, patti ann. >> the farm bill is low hanging ornament on the congressional christmas tree, if they just embrace it, they can automati
have hit it essentially. they can move money around and delay the impact of that another couple of months so there has to be a vote in congress. at that point, the question is, does that trigger the idea of a grand bargain or big deal. they're not even speak, savannah. they're not even having basic communication. so the idea they will come up with a temporary compromise seems far-fetched. >> chuck todd in pensacola, florida, for us, thank you so much. >> you got it. use your birthday wish for it. >> good idea. thanks so much. >> i didn't know i had a birthday wish. i used it on the dance music at the top of the show. sorry. >> that came and went. >>> to the other top stories of the morning. natalie morales. good morning. >> good morning to you, willie and the birthday girl and everyone in the news. former president george h.w. bush is in intensive care at the houston hospital. the 88-year-old is alert and talking but in guarded condition with a stubborn fever. the 41st president has been hospitalized since late november. he was admitted for a lingering cough and bronchitis. >>>
of the obama administration. she tangled with congress and even the white house itself, particularly on global warming issues. >>> the other big story tonight, a deadly storm continues to wreak havoc in the northeast this hour. and before it's even over, another storm is already forming with now 65% of the country still covered in snow. the weather channel's eric fisher is in lewiston, maine. good evening to you, eric. >> good evening, natalie. 16 people have been killed by this latest winter storm that brought everything from tornadoes to coastal flooding, hurricane-force wind gusts and nearly 2 feet of snow. certainly has brought plenty of misery for people from texas to maine. today a massive storm moved north, dumping more than a foot of snow in parts of new england. it's been a record-breaking system as it moved across the country. >> look at that tornado. >> spawning a reported 26 tornadoes across the south. and flooding along the already hard-hit east coast. the results? a travel nightmare for millions. >> we circled for over an hour before we landed, yeah. pretty rough flight coming in

moatfication by treasury this was about to happen, trying to get congress to move in a -- interest didn't work then. we will see if it works now. >> defaulting on legal obligations which is another way to confuse the mainstream media that does not understand thinking finances and seem to think that that means automatically not going pay our debts in some way. makes it purposely confusing. john, thank you so much. john harwood, thank you. >>> with this debt ceiling news, tim geithner is grossly incompetent or bending the numbers. how else could he have been so far off on the mark? that's my opinion. not john's. joining us now to discuss democratic strategist jimy williams. let me start with you. what do you think of this whole situation? is this politics by timothy geithner, secretary geithner? >> it is politics on every side. what is so frustrate sing this letter clearly underscores what many americans already know. we have a budget crisis because we have a spending crisis. while the talking heads on tv go on about tax cuts for the rich and we get them, will we not get them, had is about spend

we extend fisa for another five years and give our intelligence professionals the tools they need to protect our country and frankly give the congress, the president and most importantly the american people the obligation to look at this authority again in five years and see if we still need it. today we need to extend the foreign intelligence surveillance act as it's been amended and i hope, madam president, that we do that, and i would yield back whatever time i might have. a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from colorado. a senator: i would be happy to defer to the vice chairman of the intelligence committee. the presiding officer: the senator from georgia. mr. chambliss: i rise in support of h.r. 4959, the fisa amendments reauthorization act of 2012. and before i speak on it as vice chairman of the intelligence committee, i want to just say this bill, along with the many other products that have come out of the intelligence committee, have been put together in a strong bipartisan way under the leadership of our chairman, senator feinstein, who has b
're talking about one person in the united states talking to another person who is also in the united states. this law contains a number of safeguards that many people thought would prevent the warrantless collection of wholly domestic communications and i think the congress ought to know whether these safeguards are working or not. so our tripartisan group of senators dug in some this issue as well and we asked the director back in july, we asked him if he knew whether any wholly domestic communications had been collected under the fisa amendments act. mr. president, here we are talking about wholly domestic communications from one american, for example, in rhode island to another american in the home state of senator merkley and myself. i'm disappointed to say the director declined to answer this question as well. so let's contemplate that for a moment. a tripartisan group of senators, democrats, republicans, independents, asked if they the government knew whether any wholly domestic communications had been collected under the fisa law, and the head of the intelligence community declined t
